** I think when he first built it he didn't know Gasback was still alive or had given up the chase. Gasback had not attacked any of his former robbers yet. By the time he got it built it was too late. Either that or he figured there was no way Gasback could take out all of the bounty hunters.

* After Wolfwood dies, what exactly did Vash shoot with his Angel Arm? It looked to me like he just shot it into the sky, at nothing.

** Damn ''near'' any. He may very well have gotten eviscerated a few times.

* In "Badlands Rumble", Cain is trying to lay low because Gasback wants to murder him, right? So why the ''hell'' does he think it's a good idea to create a 700 foot bronze statue with his ''goddamn face on it''? It doesn't exactly scream subtlety.

Added DiffLines:

** Might be because Brilliant Dynamite Neon was acting like a terrorist with a cause. He had a reason to kill the train operator as messed up as it might be. Monev just killed a bunch of people for no goddamn reason which is something Vash literally can't comprehend.

* If seeing Monev kill people drove Vash into Berserk mode, then why didn't seeing that Brilliant Dynamite Neon had killed the one train operator do the same?

*** Except that he never knew about the black hair thing until decades after he had the scars. It's likely he didn't even know he could heal, or if he did, simply chose to keep the scars as a reminder of the price of not taking a life.

* Is it just me or is the anime ending complete and utter nonsense? Vash spends the entire show going to great lengths not to do a thing... and then does that thing. It'd make sense if it was expanded further about WHY he decided to kill Knives in the final fight but... it just happens and then it immediately ends. No "I've realized that I can't let him live and continue killing others" or anything, not even Vash having any kind of emotional ramifications from finally killing his brother. It confused the hell out of me cos Vash jumps up and goes "I know how to save Knives!" like he has a plan, and then he just shoots him stone cold dead and goes home smiling with the corpse over his shoulder.
Bear in mind that I haven't read the manga yet.. I hope it makes more sense there. Heck, I was so confused I wasn't sure if Knives was even dead or not despite him being riddled with bullets...

** In the manga, it turns out that while Vash can heal from his wounds, it uses his life force. Whenever a plant uses their energy, their hair slowly turns black, and whenever it becomes completely black, they die. Thus, Vash doesn't heal because he'd rather live with his scars than outright die.
